Google Doodle honors Elena Cornaro Piscopia first woman with a doctorate

first_imgUpdate 7:00 p.m. PT: Google made the doodle available in the U.S. Post a comment Tags The Google Doodle for June 5. Google Google’s search doodles often take to highlighting the trail blazers that have changed the world. The doodle on June 5 is no exception. Drawn up by Californian artist Alyssa Winans, Wednesday’s doodle shows Elena Cornaro Piscopia, a female scholar from Venice, Italy who in 1678 became the first woman in the world to be awarded with a doctorate. The doodle shows Piscopia with her head in a book in a library, with Winans hoping to show how Elena was happiest “when she was able to study undisturbed.” Today marks her 373rd birthday. Cue the “tanti auguri a te!”Piscopia was trained in the classic languages of Latin and Greek during her childhood years and developed a love of study. She mastered seven languages in total. However, she didn’t seek glory or degrees, she was just keenly interested in accumulating knowledge. It was at her father’s insistence that she requested access to the Doctor of Theology course at the University of Padua.But this was the 1670s and the Roman Catholic Church did not want to offer a woman such a title. Eventually, the church allowed Elena to apply for a Doctor of Philosophy and so she did. Her thesis defense — an oral test in front of examiners and the public — was so well attended it had to be moved to the local cathedral. She passed with flying colors and wrote her name in the history books on June 25, 1678. Elena passed away just six years later, after battling tuberculosis. The Google Doodle was not originally visible if you are using the search giant in the U.S. on June 5 but it, and it has now been added. In France, today’s Google Doodle celebrates French director Jacques Demy. 49 Photos 0center_img Our favorite Google Doodles through the years Share your voice Sci-Tech Google Doodlelast_img read more

7yearold Kerala boy ends up in ventilator after brutal attack by mothers

first_imgEDITORS NOTE: Graphic content / A Yemeni boy lies in a hospital bed as he receives treatment in the Huthi-rebel-held capital Sanaa on March 11, 2019, from wounds sustained during a reported air strike in the Kisar district of the northern Hajjah province.MOHAMMED HUWAIS/AFP/Getty Images [Representational Image]A 7-year-old from Kerala ends up in ventilator after he suffered major injuries including a cracked skull after he was brutally attacked by his mother’s partner on Thursday.The incident took place in Kumaramangalam near Thodupuzha in Idukki district of Kerala when Arun Anand (35), a native of Thiruvananthapuram started assaulting the younger brother of the victim. The boy was trying to protect his 4-year-old brother from getting beaten up by the accused.The accused smashed the victim on the ground and had hit him with a stick on his head. The boy sustained skull fracture, internal bleeding and lung injury. He also had cuts and bruises all over the body. The boy’s mother and brother were also present during the incident.The incident came into light after the local hospital authorities informed the police and Child Rights Commission about the deteriorating condition of the boy. The boy was later shifted to a hospital in Ernakulam for emergency surgery. But even after the surgery, the boy is still in critical condition as the blood circulation to his head has stopped.According to the police, the accused Arun has been living with the family from the past few months and is a drug addict. The victim’s younger brother has also sustained injuries and the police have recorded his statement as he is the only witness of the assault.The Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has asked for an immediate report on the incident from the district authorities. He has also asked the hospital authorities to ensure that all expert treatments are given to the victim.Health Minister KK Shylaja said the government will bear the treatment expenses of the child. “Stringent action will be taken against those engaged in cruelty to children. The covering up of assaults against children is also a grave crime,” said the minister, reports NDTV.Several Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections have been slapped against Arun, including section 303 (attempt to murder), 323 (punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 325 (voluntarily causing grievous hurt) and Section 75 of the Juvenile Justice Act.last_img read more

Rainn Wilson and SoulPancake Shine Light on Mental Health With Funny Or

first_imgThroughout the month, SoulPancake also is working with non-profit partners Mental Health America, National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), and Crisis Text Line to spread the word about how those in need can get help.SoulPancake’s programming for the Mental Health Awareness Month includes:Live event “Four Conversations About One Thing”: Three-hour event on May 29 at the Hammer Museum bringing people in the entertainment industry together with wellness experts for discussions around mental health as it relates to work, parenting, masculinity, and media. Tickets are available on an invitation-only basis. Why We Rise, a partnership between the L.A. County Department of Mental Health and Well Being Trust, is a supporting sponsor of the event.“Soul Stories”: An original digital series using person-on-the-street conversations as “a window into peopleʼs hearts,” to explore the ways everyone can relate regarding mental health.“The Takeover” series on Instagram: The SoulPancake Instagram account Story activation will feature weekly takeovers by YouTubers and social-media influencers focused on mental health sharing their stories, perspectives and expertise on how to live a better life.“The Mondays…” newsletter: A special weekly email newsletter dedicated to mental-health life hacks. “There’s a long history of comedians who struggle with depression, addiction and suicide,” Wilson told Variety. “Our clarion call as a company is to make content as fun and entertaining as possible, even when the subject matter is hard. For this doc, we thought it best to talk directly to comedians and leverage their sense of humor for this topic.” Related ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

The initiative will include digital series, a special newsletter, and a May 29 invite-only event in L.A. hosted by comedian Ron Funches with guests including comedian Amanda Seales and Chris Wood, co-founder of the IDONTMIND mental-health awareness movement.SoulPancake, which Participant Media bought in 2016, has previously produced content on mental-health issues over the course of its 10-year history. But this month’s Beautiful Mind lineup is more extensive. “Suicide is the second leading cause of death for young people,” Wilson said. “We’re in an epidemic for young people of depression, anxiety and suicidal ideation. It’s the most pressing issue we’re facing.”SoulPancake’s focus on mental health, which will extend past May, was driven in part by its audience asking for more coverage of the topic, said Shabnam Mogharabi, general manager and co-founder. “Frankly we were seeing a bigger need for a conversation around this for our millennial audience,” she said.One reason SoulPancake decided to greenlight “It’s Not That Funny” was to dispel the notion that artists are funny only because they’re suffering. Both Wilson and Mogharabi cited the death of stand-up comedian Brody Stevens earlier this year of an apparent suicide as illustrating of the need to address mental health in the business.SoulPancake expects to generate revenue from the programming, but the ultimate goal is bigger than that. “We’re walking a fine line,” Wilson said. It’s a “double bottom-line” business, with a obligation to generate revenue while also serving its mission “to make stuff that matters.”Wilson, who’s best known for his turn as Dwight Schrute on NBC’s “The Office,” said he has first-hand experience dealing with mental-health issues. “I’ve dealt at various time with anxiety and depression and addiction,” he said. “I’ve put many family members through rehabs and dealt with suicide attempts – and I’m so not alone in that.” TV News Roundup: EPIX Releases Teaser for DC Origin Story ‘Pennyworth’ (Watch) SoulPancake, the digital media company founded by Rainn Wilson, has tapped a bunch of comedians to talk about depression and suicide — part of a month-long focus on mental health.The Participant Media-owned company is running special block of programming in May dedicated to mental-health issues. A key pillar in the lineup is a documentary produced with Funny Or Die featuring comedians discussing life-and-death issues.The documentary, “It’s Not That Funny,” will star Rainn Wilson, Sarah Silverman, Wayne Brady, Rachel Bloom, Chris Gethard, Sara Benincasa, Riki Lindhome, Anna Akana, Baron Vaughn and other comedians. In the 25-minute film, they’ll explore how anxiety, depression and suicide affect performers in the comedy biz. The film, directed by Mike Bernstein, will premiere May 30 on SoulPancake’s YouTube channel and on Funny Or Die.last_img read more
